Hello Hooligans, and thank you for visiting the internet home of the Irish band The Humble Hooligans. We’re currently playing shows all over Southern California and booking our 2015 European tour with dates in France, Scotland, and Ireland thus far. We’ll also be coming to the East coast in September playing a festival in Dansbury, CT with some New York Dates to follow.
Some news from the recording front, the band goes into studio in July to start laying the foundation for our new full length album which we hope to be able to release in December 2015 or Early 2016. Albums are always fun, but they take a lot of work to get them release ready, so stay posted on that front. We’re recording at Weathertop Studio in Aguanga, CA with our good friend and illustrious producer Matt Maulding. We can’t wait for you to hear the new tunes! Keep your ears peeled at our next show, because we’re working the new songs into our set to polish them up a bit.
Regarding the state of the band, we have hit a smooth patch, with all members committed to moving forward and making great music. Our newest member, Mr. Benjamin Sturley on the bass guitar, is a great addition. He has pro chops and a great feel for the music. His style lends itself to the band in a very complimentary way, and we’re really glad to have him. Kevin Patrick Taylor (Accordion) has been with the band since February and has really been instrumental in writing some of the new music. His subtle play in the pocket allows him to float between parts with deference and skill, float like a butterfly, sting like a bee, so to speak. Eric Avdeef or as we introduce him Eric Awesome has been in the band for almost a year, and has really found his place in the celtic inspired pub rock. His ability to play at any volume has contributed greatly to the recent success of the band. And as always the mainstay Troy Donham has been pushing the band forward for eleven years now. His tireless drive to see the band succeed has been the glue that has held the band together. He is writing more music than he has even done in the past and with the help of the rest of the amazing musicians in the band, the songs are really coming together.
So, come see a show, or two and see what the boys are planning. We know you could follow any Irish Band, so we appreciate each and every one of you. Much love to our friends and family, thank you for all of your endless support!
